Does Mozilla's VPN have value ?
« on: Fri, 05 August 2022, 09:20:50 »
I use Firefox exclusively, and they keep offering the Mozilla VPN for $5 per month.

Would that be a reasonable choice? If somebody is going to be harvesting my info, I trust Mozilla about as much as anyone else.

Thanks
Neoreactionarism is a pseudo-intellectual fascist movement that Musk and Peter Thiel have embraced.  One ideological plank to neoreactionarism is that the "liberal” media is in cahoots with — wait for it — American intelligence agencies and other political establishments to thwart the rule of the enlightened technocrat.  It is only the rise of a superior technocratic class who will crush the establishment and their middle managers and bring about true freedom to human beings.  And it looks like Musk is trying to bring about this political Nirvana at Twitter.

You're looking at this wrong.
If you you're using it to access region locked content a VPN is great, if you're using it to stop companies selling your data then you're getting scammed. The only company you're (possibly) hiding from is your ISP. Is it worth $5 a month to stop your ISP from tracking you?

VPNs are just the latest bit of BS to be hoisted upon the public.
Think about this, why is there suddenly so many VPNs? Why are they being pushed so hard? Do you honestly think they all have your best interest in mind or is this just a cash grab?

VPN is a scam in most cases.

Corporate use yes, private use no.

Last I checked Mozilla VPN uses Mullvad behind the scenes. It'd be better going with Mullvad directly imo but maybe Mozilla makes it more streamlined or something.

A questionable suggestion, in my opinion. It seems to me that using different applications that help hide the user's address is more advantageous. The only difference is that each of them serves a specific purpose. At the same time, proxy servers target more global requests. Since proxy servers don't use strong encryption, they are much faster than VPNs. In addition, local caching allows proxies to load web pages much faster. For this reason, I mostly use the best proxy service suitable for my work. But I would like to know more ways to hide location.
